Artist Statement

I have participated in numerous juried shows and had solo shows of my paintings. Ive sold my photography and digital art online, in galleries and other real-time venues, although I am currently marketing my work primarily online. My stock art sells well and Ive sold at least 2400 images in that venue. Life events had steered me away from painting but I am jumping back into that part of my process and hope to have new paintings online within the next few months.

Art, both the making and the viewing of it, encourages us to view the world in new ways, as well as to look into ourselves. A world without art would be intellectually and spiritually barren. Imagination makes all things possible, and art is the most profound outgrowth of the human imagination that is not subservient to external purposes though of course, there are exceptions. Therefore, even in its all its confusing flux and diversity, art is perhaps the purest phenomenon among human endeavors.


For me, the activity of creating art is an affirmation of life, a consciously nurtured jubilation in the miracle of form at all levels of the universe. The interrelationship among forms and organisms reveals itself at every level of nature. Each level of organization, from the atomic to the cellular level, through tissues and organs, and up through the level of organisms and species, is at once a microcosm and a macrocosm to the levels above and below it. I think it is this profound organization and similarity in form and function at every level of nature, this brilliantly-orchestrated unity-in-diversity, that makes natural objects like flowers, seashells and fractals appealing to so many people. Its not strictly the beauty expressed by the object, but also the relationship of its form to the greater FORM in nature, to the cosmic WHOLE, that implies something much more profound and far-reaching than a single moment of beauty. When something refers to eternity, evokes the infinite, we feel inspired, whether or not we tie those feelings to any specific view of God.


Something transcendent happens, in my opinion, when the image of an object, pattern, or scene refers to another form or aspect of nature. A quality of ambiguity or mystery calls up a crossover between forms at different levels of reality. An example would be a leaf, for instance, rendered in such a way that it resembles tongues of flame as much as a leaf. It also blurs the line we draw between organic and inorganic, as well as other intellectual distinctions and dichotomies that we use to define and fragment our perception of the world. For me, the experience of mystery confers a feeling of elation based on the complex web of interrelationship on this planet and in the universe. Pure joy.


The quality we call beauty is inherent in every inch of the visible universe, as well as at levels too small or large to be apparent to the naked eye i.e. both the microscopic and telescopic levels. So why would I necessarily paint a picture, a scene with the recognizable and familiar spatial and thematic elements of our everyday world, when I can just as readily, and perhaps with more purity of concentration and perception, find magic in a shred of tree bark or the contour of an ocean wave The act of painting a recognizable scene is just as limiting to me as it may ...   Read More
